Holiday home tours are a grand tradition for the historic and beloved Independent Presbyterian Church (IPC). Entering into their 65th year, the church and its gracious stewards are opening their homes and sanctuary to share the joy of the season with the community. Floral designers and homeowners with an eye for style offer an abundance of ideas through inspiring holiday décor. From Christmas tea in the Great Hall of the church to decorations in the sanctuary and parlor to the grand homes on tour, IPC invites you to share the season.
Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Tickets go on sale beginning Dec. 1, and can be purchased by calling the church at 205-933-1830, by visiting its ipc-usa.org, or by stopping by the church reception desk during business hours. Tickets may also be purchased at the homes and at the church during the hours of the tour.
Saturday, Dec. 13 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday, December 14 from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
